Some of his points are valid; but, claiming that the NFL football ad was intended to be racist is totally ridiculous.
Did anyone really think "Boy, if that had been a white guy he would have ignored that beautiful naked woman and gone to play football." Give me a break.
By "finding" racism where it doesn't exist he falls into the same trap that he is criticizing.

I think he has a point about the ebonics and "brown sugar" cracks being put into peoples' mouths in cartoons, but I don't think you can caricaturize someone's appearance without emphasizing whatever "ethnic" features they have. Was Aislin a racist if he emphasized Rene Levesque's bad combover, skinny shoulders and ill-fitting suits? Sounds mighty white to me.
